State gambling regulators released the first round of downstate New York casino applicants’ Q&As on Wednesday afternoon, revealing what topics gambling companies and developers are most concerned with at the earliest stages of the process.

The 103-page report deals with all manner of regulatory steps and procedures required by the 11 applicants seeking one of three available downstate NY casino licenses. From construction costs and licensing fees to Community Advisory Committees and planned diversity efforts, the report from the NY State Gaming Commission and Gaming Facility Location Board addresses 613 inquiries submitted between Jan. 3 and Feb. 3.

The second round of applicant questions are due by Oct. 6, according to the NYSGC.
